The IMS2 is based on Sequans’ industry-leading Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform, a field-proven solution that is available today and already operating inside numerous LTE for IoT devices.
The Monarch-based WNC IMS2 module meets ETSI SMT specifications and offers LTE connectivity for multi-design capability in a very compact form factor. The module is available in an ETSI 1915 footprint, supports AT&T’s bands 2, 4, and 12, IoT interfaces, and is suitable for the design of numerous types of IoT devices in numerous markets, including smart home and business, utilities, retail, industrial, and consumer.
Monarch is the industry’s first and most highly optimized LTE-M/NB-IoT chip. It was the first chip to appear in the market and the first to become operator-certified and deployed. Although it is initially targeted to support AT&T’s LTE bands, the IMS2 module is not limited to these bands and thanks to its built-in programmable RF filtering technology, it can support other bands in any market worldwide without any change in hardware.
